Marketing Assistant – 9 months fixed term contract
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Marketing Assistant to join the UK’s leading independent equestrian publisher. As a key member of the marketing team, the Marketing Assistant will be involved in working with a range of magazines and brand extensions including Horse&Rider and PONY Magazines.
